The drought is expected to lower the nation’s corn supply, and that has producers worried about feeding their livestock. The South Dakota Pork Producers Council will be holding two producer meetings on Thursday to educate producers how to stretch their available feed and cope with high feed costs. South Dakota Pork Producers Council Executive Director Glen Muller says these meetings will provide a good opportunity for producers to learn how to streamline their feeding processes.
Muller says the keynote address will be given by SDSU Extension Swine Specialist Dr. Bob Thaler and producers will have a chance to visit with him one on one following his talk.
There is no cost to attend either meeting. Mitchell’s meeting gets underway at 1p.m. and the Watertown meeting starts at 7p.m.
